I recently filmed a video about being 9 months pregnant where I share a little bit about “how I’m feeling” and also share the chosen name for our baby. I looooove her name and am so happy to share it with everyone now that she is pretty close to making her arrival.
I filmed this a few days ago and as of today I’m 38 weeks pregnant. 38 WEEKS PREGNANT! My baby is now the size of a spaghetti squash, pomeranian, or ukulele depending on which theme you want to go with for size.
While it felt like the beginning of my pregnancy took years to get through, the more recent months have flown by quickly. It feels like just yesterday that I was announcing I was pregnant to our families and sharing our baby gender reveal.
Now I’m counting down the days until she makes her arrival. Yep, we are in the days countdown! No matter what, she will be born this month. By the end of the month, I’ll be a mom.
The fact blows my mind in a lot of ways. I know we’ve planned for this and saved for this and are so thrilled for this. Yet, part of my is internally freaking out because I don’t feel ready to be 100% responsible for a baby and honestly I’m super anxious about giving birth.
The biggest part of me is super ready because I’m very tired of being pregnant. Being pregnant sucks and it’s been hard for me even without any major complications. I feel blessed that I’m not dealing with anything traumatic right now but I’m also very ready to not be pregnant. I’d love to get back to feeling normal in my body again.
The countdown continues as I move closer to little one’s birthday and my birthday later this month as well! April is going to be a very interesting time!
